What a wonderful journey these last 5 years have been! It's amazing how fast our boys are growing up and talking more and more each day. The precious memories that are made each and every day cannot be bottled so we felt that this would be the next best thing. We look forward to sharing with you all the tremendous love we have for our family!

Our Family Christmas 2008

What a fun Christmas it was this year!! There is nothing better than watching your kids eyes light up when they see their toys from Santa. Caleb was so excited about Santa this year. Meme had all the kids over to make reindeer food and Caleb could not wait to spread it in the yard. I was afraid that we would never get him into bed Christmas eve but it was just the opposite! Christmas eve night we went to a candle light service at our church then we had Christmas at Nana's house and then we had to hurry home to put the cookies and milk under the tree and spread the reindeer food. As soon as we pulled in the driveway Caleb took off running in the house as he was taking his clothes off down the hallway. He got his pj's on and could not jump into the bed fast enough! Wow! I was shocked!!! He knew that Santa would not come until we were all asleep.
The next morning when Caleb woke up he was so sweet! He ran into the living room and the first thing that he saw was Ace's motorcycle. Ace was still sleeping but instead of Caleb looking at his presents he wanted to wake Ace up to tell him about his motorcycle that santa brought him. Caleb has the sweetest little heart, always taking care of everyone else first.
Ace had no idea what was going on so Caleb stepped up as the big brother and unwrapped all of his gifts for him. I don't think Caleb had a problem with that at all.

The first thing that Ace noticed were the cookies that santa did not eat, NOT the presents!!
After the excitement of santa it was time to do it all over again at Meme's house! All the kids were so much fun to watch. They could not open their gifts fast enough!
My favorite gift this year was from Chandler. She made a little dish with the letter J on it for me at her school. It touched me so much, she could have made something for a number of people and she chose me. She is such a special little girl! Jamie was excited to get a leaf blower that he has wanted for a couple of years, this I know was his favorite gift!

Caleb made all of his grandparents coffee mugs that he decorated all by himself. They all loved them and he was so proud!
Mom called and asked Jeff and Jamie if they wanted to take on the responsibility of frying a turkey this year. I have never seen two grown men so excited!!! They were worse than women...on the phone with each other all the time, researching on the internet and comparing recipes. They gave us all a good laugh....Here they are where they spent most of their time.... just watching it cook!

Guys, you did a GREAT job!!! It was wonderful! I think this is going to become an every year job for them.

We could not have asked for a better Christmas, we are so blessed! We hope all of our family and friends had a Christmas as special as ours and we wish you all a Happy New Year!
